The Tarot is an unlimited oracle. Once you understand the cards themselves there are infinite things the deck can do. This seven week class goes beyond basic meanings and readings in an effort to empower students to interpret the cards with added complexity and generosity of spirit. Drawing from Kabbalah, Astrology, mythology and animistic practices, this course is designed to immerse you in your Tarot practice, body, mind, heart and spirit.
If you are ready to start going deeper with the cards this class is for you. Each week of class will include an opening invocation, an advanced spread (that students and teacher will interpret together), a lecture-inspired conversation and an experiential practice designed to help students embody the cards, not just intellectually understand them.
In addition to the seven classes, there will be two optional informal “study sessions” where students can come together to practice giving readings to each other and ask additional questions. As with everything The Spiritual Gayz do, building community is as important as the learning and teaching. These optional meetings will help foster a deeper sense of connection to the fellow seekers in class.
The High Priestess
This syllabus was designed by pulling the cards themselves but will remain flexible to address the desires and needs of the students who have gathered. As this is the first time we are teaching this course, it's an exciting opportunity to be the first group that gets to experience and shape the material.
If you’re wondering if you’re “advanced” enough to take this course, you probably are! By no means do you have to be an “expert” in reading the Tarot. As long as you have some familiarity with the cards and their meanings (even if it's just a word or phrase you associate with each one), you will be fine. If you’re unsure if this course is the right fit for you please reach out and we can determine if it’s a good match.
Classes meet on consecutive Tuesdays from 5-7 PM (pst) starting March 30th and ending on May 11th, 2021
